Pressing PrnScr "Print Screen" on the keyboard results in a screenshot being silently saved under /home/%user%/Pictures/

How can I change this location?

Open dconf-editor (note that you may need to install it first: sudo apt install dconf-editor)

Navigate to org.gnome.gnome-screenshot:

  • org
    • gnome
      • gnome-screenshot

Then enter a value for auto-save-directory in the format file:///path/to/directory/ e.g

file:///home/yourusername/Pictures/screenshots/
  • Note: Be sure to press enter when you have finished typing the value entry so that it is saved. If the dconf Editor window looses the focus your changes will be discarded unless you have pressed enter to "Enter" them. ;-) – Jesse the Wind Wanderer Apr 29 '16 at 11:56
